4:35am
that her mother fought cancer for almost ten years before dying at the age of 56. she says it wasn't an easy decision but she had her breasts removed in february to reduce the risk of the disease. she explains, my doctors estimated that i had an 87% risk of breast cancer and 50% risk of ovarian cancer. i chose not to keep it private because there are so many women that do not know that she may be living under the shadow of cancer. it is my hope that they will be able to get gene tested and if they have a high risk, they will know that they have strong options. she writes should he knows she carries the quote, faulty gene that increases the risk of developing breast cancer and

4:38am
similar as well. 84 degrees in livermore. about 73 in oakland. a little breezy in san francisco at 64. about 80 in vallejo. the temperatures will be cooling down over the next few days and the winds will be kicking up. right now, check out the roads with elizabeth. >> thank you, lawrence. outside we're going to start you out with this live look at the golden gate bridge. obviously traffic coming out of marin county into san francisco is cruising right along. one car heading towards the pancake. northbound by the way they should have two lanes open to traffic. the east bay, this morning we're seeing road work in both directions of 880 between washington and hyde street. it should be picked up in the next 20 minutes. no big delays heading southbound through the maize. continuing towards the oakland airport and hayward, over the bay bridge, upper deck traffic into san francisco looks good.
